Hiring An Architectural Photographer? Here's What To Look For

Hiring An Architectural Photographer? Here's What To Look For

ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHER’S HAVE SPECIALIZED SKILLS

It’s important to realize that architectural photography is a specialty within the vast profession of commercial photography. With the profession of architectural photography comes a variety of specialized tools, skills and knowledge of the craft. This includes but not limited to; knowledge of industry standard business practices within the architectural community and specialized post production skills to overcome visual obstacles such as exposure blending and advanced compositing and retouching. To put it another way, an architectural photographer will have a completely different set of skills and knowledge than a wedding or wildlife photographer would have.

Architectural Fine Art Bridge Series | Brian Rodgers Jr. | Digital Art That Rocks

This is a three part architectural fine art series that I created recently while one location in Charleston, South Carolina. Though today I'm a working professional in the world commercial photography, I've been an artist my entire life. I've enjoyed creating art with many mediums over the years including but not limited to drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and music. This short series is an homage to those years of studying the elements and principles of design such as line, form, shape, repetition, space color, texture, and rhythm.

Truth be told, this series didn't happen intentionally. I didn't seek out the creation of these images, in fact they found me. I was traveling in South Carolina and had an opportunity to hop on a boat and spend a good portion of the day on the Atlantic ocean. While on the boat, I saw many things that caught my eye, including some nearby dolphins. But I've always been fascinated with bridges for some reason. They also bear many philosophical meanings. I photographed these bridges traveling at least 40 mph. With my camera in hand, I quickly composed and framed this series of bridge photographs capturing what naturally came to my mind's eye. I’m always intrigued by finding the simplicity in something so seemingly complex.

This fine art bridge series isn't about technical approach. It's not about documenting the environment in which the bridge exists. It's about creating a mood, and a feeling. I think these images offer the viewer a haunting beauty. These images are desolate in the fact that there are no clouds floating around in the sky... as if everything is at a stand still. There are no moving cars. No people. Just metal structures in the sky with a lot of negative space, repetitive lines, shape and form. But deeper than that, a sense of mystery and alternate thinking. 

I think it's important that we don't always take things at face value. Many things in life have much deeper meanings. Look at the before and after of this architectural image. It may look like a pretty mundane image at first glance, however when meticulously processed in black and white the image takes on a completely different mood.
